As pioneers in aftermarket technology, Connects2 are proud to launch their latest edition of the 12V Review – a magazine dedicated to bringing you the latest from the car audio industry.
In business as in life, each year, we strive to be better, learn more and truly thrive in our environment. Here at Connects2, we’ve been working hard since 1999 to bring you the latest in cutting edge car audio technologies and our goal is to continue doing so for the foreseeable future.
From working in the industry for so long, we’ve gained a real appreciation for the quirks of automotive and the hard-working, loyal people within our sector. We’re pleased to have worked alongside many of them to develop solutions across the globe and we’re proud of the many connections we’ve made.
The 12V Review is a publication for the industry which we’ve been working on and releasing quarterly since 2015. Designed as a showcase, not just for our efforts, but for the combined knowledge and progress of the aftermarket as a whole, the magazine is targeted at those with an interest in car audio beyond the stock OEM options available to them.

2017 is drawing to a close and what a dramatic year it’s been for the industry so far. The last nine months has seen unprecedented world-first changes with massive implications, like Norway taking the plunge and switching off its FM services, and the UK and France making the huge decision to ban all petrol and diesel cars by 2040. The rise of electric cars has been coming for a long time now, but 2017 will go down as the year when the ball really started rolling.
This issue is packed full of information on these changes, so you can keep up to date on where the industry is heading in the near future. We travelled to the IAA show in Frankfurt and saw first-hand how electric is beginning to take over, and also to IFA in Berlin to see how the landscape is shifting across the entire tech sector. You can find reviews of both of these shows on Pages 12 & 20.
At IFA, AutoDAB got the chance to premiere their brand new, game-changing AutoDAB Mini to the world, alongside their full range of digital radio solutions for vehicles, and we have a full write-up of the product on Page 9. Elsewhere, you can find all the information on our newest entry into the Adaptiv range, the Adaptiv lite. which should satisfy any multimedia enthusiast on a budget, plus a handy installation guide for fitting an Adaptiv into a Vauxhall Insignia 2016.
Back in the office, we currently have some stock left of our new 2017/8 Integration Guide, a 500+ page publication which contains information on all of our products alongside high quality images and detailed application data. You can find out more about the catalogue and how to get your physical copy on Page 4.
